Twitter reacts to news of Chargers pulling Bosa contract offer

We turn to Twitter now to see how everyone else is processing this insane Chargers/Joey Bosa news:

That is practically an understatement from Schefter. The war has been ongoing. It’s just no longer a cold war. The Chargers are out in the open now and not just leaking things to the media.

Andre Brandt would have you settle down and think things can still get done, but Matt Miller makes a good point:

Bosa’s financial situation isn’t such that he needs to give in here. He can actually stand on principle if he so chooses, go back into the draft, and end up on better run franchise than the Chargers.

It’s a fine point from Garafolo that this is simply an unprecedented way to negotiate by an NFL team. The Chargers have gone from playing hardball to something that I don’t even have a name for.

Ah, but therein lies the rub. The Chargers gave us a lot of details, but they have omitted something rather important: the entire things this contract has been fought over. That makes you wonder, doesn’t it?

Everyone he’s talked to thinks they’re ridiculous? That’s not encouraging. But, hey, Kevin Acee doesn’t want to lose his access to the Chargers, so here he is carrying their water again:

This just goes to show how absurd the Chargers’ initial offer was. They thought they could push Bosa around and apparently they should have done their homework a little better.

And in what should be a shock to nobody, the NFLPA has been in contact. This could get uglier still.

This is why everyone laughs at the Chargers.

You can always count on Bernie Wilson to put things in perspective. What do you think?

UPDATE: Here are a couple more choice remarks:
